Subject[PATCH 0/3] Fix and cleanup for 32-bit PV sysexit
Date
The first patch fixes Xen PV regression introduced by 32-bit rewrite. Unlike the
earlier version it uses ALTERNATIVE instruction and avoids using xen_sysexit
(and sysret32 in compat mode) pv ops, as suggested by Andy. (I ended up patching
TEST with XOR to avoid extra NOPs, even though I said yesterday it would be
wrong. It's not wrong)

As result of this patch irq_enable_sysexit and usergs_sysret32 pv ops are not
used anymore by anyone and so can be removed.

Boris Ostrovsky (3):
x86/xen: Avoid fast syscall path for Xen PV guests
x86: irq_enable_sysexit pv op is no longer needed
x86: usergs_sysret32 pv op is no longer needed
